Pep Guardiola gives it straight to Frank Lampard over Chelsea sacking

Pep Guardiola believes the writing was on the wall for Chelsea rival Frank Lampard when he started to lose games.

Guardiola admits he would have liked to have seen the Blues give Lampard more time – instead of sacking him following a bad run of results.

The Blues have dropped to ninth in the Premier League and owner Roman Abramovich has fired club legend Lampard after just 18 months in charge.

Guardiola knows managers have to keep winning matches because long-term projects at the top clubs rarely exist anymore.

The Manchester City boss said: “For all managers – you have to win. People talk about projects, but they don’t exist, you have to win or you’ll be sacked.

“Respect for Chelsea and hopefully I can see him (Lampard) soon, take him to a restaurant to see him again when lockdown is over.

“It depends on the results, not the philosophy or projects. You get results or you’ll be replaced.

“All the managers need it (patience). I’m not judging the decision from Chelsea, I respect the decision and that it has to be that way.

“But sometimes the journalist ask for clubs to be patient – and then say we should be sacked. We just try to win as much as possible, when it doesn’t happen if you don’t have the sporting director, board, CEO’s in the same line and you don’t meet the target, every manager needs time to do what you believe.
